CEP offered a free D.C. Youth Action Camp in March to provide free opportunities for youth when the public school system was closed for students. Our co-host, The Institute for Justice (IJ), did an amazing job of teaching youth about four pillars of activism. Youth were able to discuss a real-life case IJ was working on and provide ideas of possible solutions. It was a perfect day of youth activism and real-life civics training!
CEP partnered with community organizations, local agencies, elected officials, and community members to host the 4th Annual “Stop the Violence & Increase the Peace Rally” hosted in Washington, D.C.
